All members of the University - employees and students - as well as visiting scientists etc. can be tested twice a week in the auditorium of the Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm Centre, or at Rudower Chaussee 24 in Adlershof. Medically trained staff conduct rapid tests there from Monday to Friday from 7 am to 6 pm. After the nasopharyngeal swab, the test result is available about 15 minutes later. If the work in presence requires it, testing can also be done more often.

Berlin universities extend the deadlines for theses and term papers

Joint press release by the Senate Chancellery for Higher Education and Research and the State Conference of the Rectors and Presidents of the Higher Education Institutions in Berlin (LKRP)

The Senate Chancellery for Higher Education and Research and the State Conference of the Rectors and Presidents of the Higher Education Institutions in Berlin (LKRP) have agreed that the Berlin colleges and universities will extend the deadlines for theses and term papers by another month, up until 30th June 2021.

This grants students more time to complete their theses and term papers. In view of the significant decrease in the number of infections, universities and colleges are able to take first steps in opening up their operations as of today, Friday, 4th June 2021, while deploying hygiene concepts and test strategies.

University libraries are being opened for in-person lending, and computer labs, workstations and laboratories can also be used again. Furthermore, practical formats in small groups of up to 25 people may also be carried out. This has been agreed upon by the Senate Chancellery for Higher Education and Research and the LKRP, and the SARS-CoV-2 Infection Protection Ordinance of the State of Berlin was amended to this effect this week. The maximum number of people allowed to take part in in-person formats will be increased to 40 this month.

Prospects of opening up for Berlin’s universities and colleges: more presence on campus possible again from June

Joint press release by the Senate Chancellery for Higher Education and Research and the State Conference

In view of the steadily falling incidence values, preparations are being made for initial steps to open up the universities and colleges in Berlin. After more than a year of operating largely in digital mode, and with a great deal of commitment from all students, teachers and employees, the Berlin colleges and universities have made an immense contribution to fighting the pandemic. 

As of 4th June, the current restrictions to study and teaching operations will be relaxed, and more in-person activities will be made possible again on campus with the use of hygiene concepts and test strategies. University libraries will then open for in-person lending, and computer labs, workplaces and laboratories will also be able to be used again. In principle, practical formats will also be able to be carried out in small groups.

From 18th June onwards, the universities and colleges will continue to increase their proportion of in-person study and teaching activities; in addition to practical formats, it will then also be possible to conduct other courses and examinations in person. The cafeterias of the student services and support body Studierendenwerk Berlin will also be able to gradually resume operations in June, initially offering food for collection.
